When we think about Boho we know it has to be natural. Natural colours and natural materials. If you ask any interior designer what would be the best materials to use in the styling Boho nursery you will have the answer: rattan, jute, wood, and seagrass. All these components perfectly fit into a modern Boho style.
First of all the colours. The white, ivory, beige and green are great to use for the walls. This nursery created by new mom Meg Golanski is a great inspiration for Baby girl nursery in Classic Boho Style. Everything you see in this interior has natural colors and textures. Seagrass basket used for the flower pot, macrame wall decor and cushion.
Baby changing mats with floral patterns look absolutely cute and the floral baby rompers make a great accessory. Peonies changing mat cover or any floral pattern becomes a great accent!
This nursery uses very dark green and it is a great background colour to use with the white or grey bed. And again the seagrass baskets and floral Boho patterns on the bedding and the blanket.
Artificial flowers and foliage are essential for Boho nursery if you want to make it classic. Lovely wreaths and foliage can beautifully decorate the baby room.
Rattan cribs, armchairs, and shelves are great accessories for Boho Nursery.
This is the transformation from baby nursery to the toddler room. and it is beautiful Boho Style

We found this beautiful birth story and happy to share it with you. Birth is the most wonderful experience for mom even though it is painful and scary. Read the story from Tayler Golden and get inspired!
Sunny’s birth story ☀︎ It all started on Friday, August 30th. Remy was at school that day and I took Sage to the splash pad in the morning. By the afternoon I was having consistent Braxton-Hicks that I thought may turn into something more. My mind wanted to clean and prepare the house but my body was telling me to rest and eat. I called Nate and asked him to come home from work. He came home and clean the house, made us salmon for dinner and prepped some last-minute things just in case. I ate probably twice as much as I normally would. I was starving and I’m realizing now that my body knew it was fueling up for labor. I’m glad I listened as she would be in our arms by the next morning!
After dinner, I was still having a lot of Braxton-Hicks at this point. We stayed home for the evening and sat on the porch as the boys played in the yard. We got them ready for bed and told them the baby might be coming that night. I gave them both big hugs and sent them off to bed. We decided to get in bed early to relax and I fell asleep quickly. 1:10 am I woke up to a real contraction. I laid in bed for a while and got a few more. I decided to start timing them. They were coming about every 2-5 minutes. I decided to wake up Nate around 2 am. After my experience with Sage, I really wanted to be at the hospital early this time. I had wanted time to settle in. We called Whitney(SIL) to come down to stay with the boys so we could head to La Jolla. As we headed to the hospital I only had 3 mild contractions. I started to doubt progress and thought I wasn’t very far a long. I was worried that we were likely going to be sent home. We got to triage and I could tell that the nurse and midwife didn’t think I was very far along either. They checked me and to everyone’s surprise I was a six! Yay! They moved me over to our room at the birth center and I was able to hop in the tub right away. Nate created an amazing atmosphere for me. Salt lamp, dim lighting, and music. It was around 4 am and I was feeling so good! It was pure bliss that my baby was coming. ( Continued in comments ) Photos: @shaylalilian
Part 1: I was feeling so excited to meet her and I even started to cry a bit. Lexi and Shayla arrived at around 5:30 am. Lexi was there to film and Shayla was there to take photos. When they arrived labor was still mild and I was able to chat and laugh between contractions. I was really focused but also enjoying time in between each. Shortly after things started to pick up and the pressure of each contraction became stronger and stronger. Labor was taking all of my focus. I would take a big deep breath at the beginning of each contraction and let it out slowly. Then I would take another deep breath during the peak of the contraction and let it out slowly. Then another one to finishing it out. I found if I broke it up into three distinct breaths it really helped me focus and stay relaxed. I could do anything for three breaths. Nate was amazing. He was rubbing my shoulders, giving me kisses, constantly reminding me to relax and taking care of all my needs. This time was different than with Remy and Sage, it really was just him and I. We felt monitored and watched over, but we were really allowed to go through the entire labor just us.
Part 2: Around 7am the midwife came in again to check on us. She asked if I wanted to be checked and I said yes. I was an 8 which sounded good but I also knew the baby was still super high. I carried her very high my whole pregnancy and I felt I still had a long way to go. For a brief moment, doubt began to consume my thoughts. I was now laboring longer than my last baby and felt tired, over it and just exhausted. I had two more contractions. I felt refocused and relaxed. Nate talked to me about my progression so far and let me know that this was clearly transition and was a sign that we were going to see our baby soon!
Part 3: The sun was up and it began to light up our beautiful room. Labor was at another level of intensity. I was now at the point of being very vocal during contractions. I was really focusing on relaxing my pelvic floor during each contraction. I could feel myself opening up and it was amazing to feel Sunny moving in my belly. I know she was working hard at getting into place. I had a few really challenging big contractions. I had Nate putting pressure on my hips. The pain in my lower back was intense. I felt like I needed to use the bathroom. So I got out of the tub to sit on the toilet. Then I felt like I needed to push. I gave one tiny tiny push and I put my hand down and the bag of water was hanging there like a water balloon. The feeling was so crazy when my water popped as I reached down. Then BOOM. Her head was right there. I was crowning. Shayla ran out to tell the midwife. It was right during a shift change so we got two midwives and two nurses. I didn’t want to have my baby on the toilet so we walked over to the bed. Walking with a head right there wasn’t the best feeling in the world. I was on my hands and knees and my head on Nate’s shoulder. She was just coming out and my body was doing all the work. I was trying to make it go slower. The midwife was coaching me to not push but to breath. It is called the ring of fire for a reason. The amount of pressure right there is so intense. She came out so fast. I laid onto my side and they put her onto my chest. It took her a little bit to perk up and start crying. I guess that happens when they come out so fast like that. She started crying and then looked up at us. I was in love with her instantly. All I felt was pure bliss and love for her, Nate, and our family. A moment of heaven on earth that I’ll never forget.
When it comes to decorating a baby room we often think what will my baby enjoy living in? What will make him/her smile every morning? What decor will be relaxing for good sleep and entertaining at the same time? And maybe will have learning elements.
Jungle theme is the best for this!
Plenty of wall decor with Jungle trees, leaves and animals that live in the jungle.
What can we do if we build the nursery from scratch?
First of all, the floor. The wooden floor preferably darker colours will be great. Not light as we use in Nordic nurseries.
And the hand woven jute rug of natural beige or white colour. Durable jute fibers can work really well for kids’ rooms and they are allergy-free. Cotton woven rugs are also great and easy to clean and no allergy as well as compared to wool.
Wall decor depends on the budget. Wall paper can be a big investment but it will look fantastic. Even if you use it only partially just on one wall. Cactus wallpaper and jungle forest leaves are great background. Check if the wallpaper is suitable for kids rooms (no allergy components) and get enough with 30% extra for all the cutouts. You can use the left overs to decorate inside the wardrobe or a book shelf.
Even inside the drawers of the baby chest of drawers will look really nice. Use your imagination and decorate the room!
Apart from wall paper there is hanging decor. Now it is really trendy to have Animal Felt Heads in the nursery even if you have a Nordic style and for Jungle Nursery design they are essential. Giraffes, elephants, lions on one wall grouped together make a great decor. Also your child will learn the names of animals from the first days. If they can reach the decor from their cot bed it is beneficial to use tactile senses for learning.
If you have very little budget you can have 2-3 posters with safari animals. Today we have plenty of choice from watercolour to realistic photos on the posters and you can choose what best goes with your theme. We will write a separate post about choosing the poster for the nursery theme. Subscribe for updates. The posters would look better in the wooden frame on the white wall. Remember that Jungle theme is wood and green and make the best of it by adding plants in Handwoven Seagrass Baskets. Eco friendly and natural look makes it a great part of the jungle:)
Big leaves plants like Ficus Lyrata or Sansevieria Laurentii can add the Jungle real feeling and are easy to take care of and clean the dust from leaves what is really important for baby first days in your home.
The cot is up to you. It can be Babyletto white and wooden or even the simple wooden like you can buy from IKEA. It has to be simple and practical. Cot canopy can be brown or green. Adding cushions with Jungle theme prints will make the cot a part of the Jungle:)
We are so happy to find such a beautiful nursery design and share with you! It is absolutely gorgeous in terms of colour and accents!
You see? It is never enough for rainbows and unicorns! And a small vintage decor can change everything.
This nursery is designed by a mom Kelly Telfeyan. She is sharing her tips with us and where she bought the items to decorate the space for her daughter.
In fact, Kelly Telfeyan is an attorney and interior design is her passionate hobby. Let’s see what she tells about the nursery and how she created it.
I designed the nursery for our adopted daughter, Abigail Piper (seen in the photo above). My intent was to create a nursery space that was happy, cheerful, and unique. I did that by applying gold wall decals to create a feature wall, using modern art pieces from local artists, carefully selecting bookshelves and wall decor, and infusing a lot of unicorns and rainbows. I also love the Jenny Lind coral crib and the coordinating area rug!!
The teal piece under the mirror is vintage 1960s. I painted it because the wood varnish was damaged…otherwise I would never paint good, solid wood!!
I think the space should grow with my daughter for years to come!! It is one of the happiest spaces in our house!! I think people have started to move too much toward neutrals in nurseries, but no one should be afraid to use color!! I also went off the beaten path by placing the crib in the middle of the room under a chandelier!!
We are happy to share a great idea for Girl’s Nursery from Vanessa Antonelli
Before I begin a client’s design, I have an internal meeting with my team. To get a good visual, picture it like a game show. We’re all excited. Ideas are flowing. Some of us stand. Some sit.
You have an idea? Shout it out! It’s a bit of chaos, but in a really creative and fun environment. Most of the time you can hear me shouting things out like “I want a neon basketball hoop or how about a surf board shelf”.
Each time they stop and look at me and say, “Vanessa, that’s not a thing.” Ok fun police, but how about we make it a thing? And that’s exactly how most of this nursery came to be.
When my client purchased the home, they moved the walls to create one L shaped room. The shape of the space made it feel like two separate rooms, so it was my job to make it flow well and look like one beautifully designed space.
The walls were inspired by a graphic design image I found on a notebook that belonged to my own toddler daughter in the exact color. I went back and forth between hand painting it and having a custom wallpaper created.
In the end a painter was hired to re-create it on-site using the inspo image.There are so many special and sweet spots in the space too. The custom pink feather sconces that match the room’s overhead light are a spectacular standout, as well as the custom pink tree-like bookcase.
The beautiful crib has linen upholstered side panels with modern lines. There are several spaces throughout the nursery where acrylic elements appear. In order to add just a touch more, I changed the included crib legs to acrylic ones. I love making small changes to things in order to customize it for the client.
The mix of textures like the gorgeous wood finish on the custom Romina Furniture dresser, the fur ottoman and nook cushion, the crystal beaded wallpaper and the patterns utilized throughout all work so well together.
While designing I instantly realized that there was going to be a lot of pink! I knew I needed to tone that down a little and I wanted to do it with the artwork. When I was traveling with my family, I saw a painting in a restaurant that had an acrylic frame on it and a neon light.
I was so inspired by it. I knew that something in that vein with a different design and bright colors would best balance the pink sweetness of the room and give it a little sass. After all, every princess can also be a rockstar?
